Backyard. Thursday , April 19th , 2018 - 06:17:49 AM
Do you enjoy listening to music in your backyard but don't like to see speakers or messy speaker wires or do you still bring the portable boom box out when you try to sun tan? Well you can let your kids have their boom box back and install a set of rock speakers in your backyard.
· When you are choosing plants for your backyard, be certain that you are buying plants that are hardy in your temperature zone. Most reputable dealers in plants and shrubberies will be happy to assist you if you ask them for guidance in picking plants that will be able to handle the climate in your area.
Tip: For those of us who don't live in perfect climates, protect yourself from the elements. Patio and deck coverings protect you and your furniture from unwanted damage due to wind, storms and sun. Watching the rain is much more enjoyable from under a roof! Don't be afraid of incorporating things that are normally considered indoor items.
Birds love water. They use it to drink, bathe and play, and usually all in the same source... they aren't picky. In order to have the bird oasis in your backyard you have to have some source of water, it can be a simple bird bath, a pond, fountain or even puddle. They prefer shallow water so they can stand and splash their wings around to bathe. You will enjoy every minute you spend watching them play in the water.
If you're serious about landscaping your backyard then take a moment and consider your options as to how to proceed. If money is no option you could hire a landscaper and go over ideas with them. Some of the best looking backyards I've seen have been professionally done and really add to the value of the property. If you're on a budget than books are the best way to go. There are literally hundreds of books on the topic of landscaping. Stop at the library and borrow a few for the cost of nothing. Take out some writing supplies and take notes on what the books say. Consider your backyard and make a layout of what you would like and where to put it. Consider the terrain and where the best soil is and where the water would run too. A big thing to think about is what plants and trees you want to put back there. Not all plants are suited for all climates. Some plants will grow where others would quickly die.
2) Incorporate movable landscaping into your backyard. By this I mean potted plants, sculptures, fountains, etc. that can be moved. Using what I call movable landscaping, you can quickly and easily change the layout of your backyard. Just as you change the furniture arrangement of your living room, this gives you the ability to inexpensively give yourself a brand new backyard. You can even create partitions that easily separate the different areas of the yard. Potted plants are a must have because they create that lived in feel. They can be brought inside during the winter and make your home more lively during those cold winter months.
